How is the academic life at this university/college? Academic life in UTAR is pretty hectic as there are usually several assignments for each subject in a semester, hence there will be a list of assignments lined up to be completed. Lecturers are dedicated and are ever ready to help students academically. However, certain lecturers tend to spoon feed students, which causes them to be very reliant on the materials provided by lecturers and not outsourcing information themselves. UTAR students (from what I've experienced) are hard workers when it comes to completing assignments and prepping for exams, but are generally very passive when it comes to in-class participation. What are the students like? Student population in UTAR Kampar exceeds 10,000, and the number of students in each course greatly varies. The number of students for different courses may vary from 20 to 300 students per intake. There are international students, but their population percentages may be relatively small compared to that of local students. UTAR Kampar is very strict on the dress code, and students who don't abide may either be denied entry or issued a warning. Students' attire to class are generally casual and practical. What do students do when not studying? Tell us about the social and sports life. Students in UTAR Kampar are fortunate to have a large selection of entertainment and facilities all located within close proximity, such as several gyms, football courts, badminton courts, tennis courts, a pool in KTAR, karaoke centers, cyber cafes, huge selection of eateries, and 3 different hypermarkets. There are also numerous clubs and societies students can get involved with. We do, however, lack a shopping mall. What is your overall opinion about this university/college? UTAR well prepares students for the work force and the environment and facilities it provides are very conducive for studying. As it is a more affordable private university, it gives students who aren't that financially sound a chance at tertiary education. UTAR syllabus are also believed to be comparatively tougher than that of most private universities, and i believe that helps not only build on students' academic knowledge, but also character.
